Cinnaire Receives Recognition on Best Nonprofit List

The NonProfit Times (NPT), the leading business publication for Nonprofit Management, recently released the Best Nonprofits to work for in 2016. Cinnaire is honored to once again receive this highly coveted recognition, with a ranking of #21 on the top 50 Best Nonprofits overall and #8, out of 27, on the Best Medium Nonprofits (50-249 employees).

The sixth annual report is compiled with the help of Best Companies Group, Inc. (BCG). The firm conducts a thorough organizational assessment. The multi-part process is designed to gather detailed data about each participating nonprofit. Cinnaire completed a questionnaire and all staff were invited to complete a confidential survey. Partners and board members outside of our organization were also contacted. The comprehensive process provides analysts a set of data which is used to determine the strengths and opportunities of participating organizations. Results are analyzed and categorized according to eight core focus areas: leadership and planning; corporate culture and communications; role satisfaction; work environment; relationship with supervisor; training, development and resources; pay and benefits; and, overall engagement.

Cinnaire was mentioned several times throughout the NonProfit Times publication, being recognized particularly for rewarding quality work at year end with a two week holiday period, employee’s full access to our on-site gym at the Lansing headquarters as well as gym memberships for staff in all other offices, weekly pick-up and drop-off dry cleaning services, our annual Staff Summit promoting employee personal growth, and our recently announced unlimited paid time off policy.

“Cinnaire staff are dedicated to the mission of our organization and are the true heart beat that represents the impact our organization has on the communities we invest in,” said Mark McDaniel, Cinnaire President & CEO. “We are honored to receive this recognition, an accomplishment which wouldn’t be possible without the hard work and long hours our staff puts in to fulfill our commitment to providing our partners and those we serve with best-in-class services. Cinnaire extends our gratitude and thanks to the NonProfit Times for the valuable work they do in recognizing and advocating for nonprofit organizations.”
